Friday and Thanksgiving Monday two busiest days of advance polling in Canadian history

One in eight eligible voters in the Langley-Aldergrove riding cast their ballots during four advance voting days in the federal general election, while one in seven eligible voters went to the polls in Cloverdale–Langley City.
